Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing a vintage heritage project. I thought these photos of my Dad and my Granddad, would be perfect to display on our new Key and Crest Wall hanging. This is a good sized piece to work with, about 12 inches across. I am really happy with how it turned out, and it's a keepsake since my Dad and Granddad are no longer with us.
I used several products to get the look I wanted for the key and crest, meaning the scrolled areas and the key. The center area was papered with the DCWV Timeless Type Stack. I began by using a fan shaped brush to achieve a light dry coat of gesso (at that point some raw chipboard still shows through). Next I covered the whole piece with a bright turquoise luminescent type paint. Following that I dry brushed a bit of bright orange here and there. Next I embossed over everything with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress embossing powder. Following that step I stamped over the whole piece with a burlap textured stamp, and embossed those areas with copper colored embossing powder. I then rubbed Gold colored Gilder's Paste all along the edges. Thanks for looking!
